All things work together for good to those who love God.
God regularly and consistently takes all that He allows to happen to Christians, even what seems to them to be the worst things, and turns those events ultimately into blessings. That is divine providence at work.
No matter what your situation—happy, prosperous, and easy; or sad, painful, and difficult— through it all, God works to do what is ultimately best and most blessed for you.
In His providence, the Lord uses “all things,” circumstances that are evil and harmful as well as those that are good and helpful, to mold you into the kind of person He wants you to be. When you struggle with life, just remember what God promised the apostle Paul, “‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness’” (2 Cor. 12:9). That pledge is for you as well.
